Lamune Kit Kat

As you may know KitKat sells various seasonal limited edition versions in Japan. This summer the new flavor is Lamune, which comes from the English "lemonade". The original Lamune is a fizzy lemon drink similar to Sprite or 7-up sold in cute blue glass bottles, stoppered with marbles. The Lamune Kit Kat is the same shade of blue as the Lamune bottle, but only vaguely reminiscent of the taste. It starts out quite sweet and creamy, much like your standard white chocolate, but it has a little sour kick of lemon right at the very end. I'm quite fond of them and I'd advise anyone who can get their hands on some to check them out.
